What is a pre-purchase building inspection?
A building inspection is usually added as a clause or condition of the real estate sales contract. A building inspection can also be known as a pre-purchase inspection, property inspection or home inspection.
A pre-purchase building inspection looks at the condition of the property and a building inspector should be engaged once you have decided to put an offer on a property.
The inspector will undertake an inspection to determine the condition on the property and provide a written report with colour photos and an outline of any defects found within the property.
A pre-purchase inspection also gives you piece of mind that the property you are buying is in good condition.
